Yesterday was a perfect day for kiting. It was sunny and warm with just the right about of breeze. The weather this spring has been amazingly warm and wonderful. Monte keeps telling me we have to record this meteorological magnificence, so we can be depressed next spring when we endure the cold and snow well into April.

I'm just trying to enjoy what we have now... spending as much time outside as we can. Hence our eagerness to indulge the little people when they asked to fly kites. That eagerness quickly faded. That eagerness reminded me of four valuable truths: 

  1. Even something so simple as flying a kite on a windy day can be anything but simple.
  2. Give a flying kite to a two-year-old and she'll let go of the string. Every. Single. Time.
  3. A situation where there are three children and two kits never ends well.
  4. Chickens really don't like kites. Especially those which look like owls.
